Editorial Reviews

“A must for academic and law-school libraries. . . . A treasure trove of information for those who teach or practice church-state law.”
— Voice of Reason

“Any person who cares about religious liberty in America (and we should all be greatly concerned about its increasingly fragile condition) needs to read Douglas Laycock.”
— Kim Colby
Center for Law and Religious Freedom

“The church-state field is blessed with serious scholars, persuasive advocates, dynamic teachers, astute political strategists, and public commentators. Douglas Laycock is one of a very few who are all of these. I welcome this multivolume collection of his always insightful and lucid writings — from scholarly law review articles to USA Today op-ed pieces. Even those who may disagree with Laycock’s interpretation and application of the First Amendment’s religion clauses will be hard-pressed to gainsay these sentiments.”
— J. Brent Walker
